I like to re-read certain books. There is something comforting about reading a book I know well, about knowing where it is all going to end up but enjoying the journey anyway. I'm the same with films and I love reading spoilers for soaps. I don't mind knowing what is going to happen and in some cases, prefer it.
Also I devour books from my favourite authors so sometimes it is nice to read it again (a good while later) and take it at a more leisurely pace and absorb everything.
Some books I just love and want to read over and over again. I've read Lisa Jewell's and Jane Green's early books time and again - I never seem to tire of One Hit Wonder, Thirty Nothing, Babyville and Bookends.
I bought this to take on holiday when I was 17 and have lost count of the number of times I've read it. It's one of my most re-read books on my shelf.
What's New Pussycat? by Alexandra Potter
Another book I bought for the holiday when I was 17 but I've only ever read it once. There has to be a reason why I've kept hold of it all these years - it's survived many bookshelf culls.
Vince & Joy by Lisa Jewell
I've only read this once because it always felt too 'new' to read again but a few years have passed (without me realising) so I'm going to read it again. Mainly because I love Lisa Jewell's books.
It's one of my favourite books.
Do you ever re-read books? And what are you reading at the moment?
